Itinerary Help for my Trip to South America!!!!

Jump to last reply

A couple friends and I are planning a trip to South America in February 2014. We are just in the beginning stages of planning and trying to decide on how many destinations and for how long. Here is our plan thus far below. Does this logistically make sense? Are we trying to do too much in too little time?

Fly Chicago to Rio
Rio: 3 nights (not during Carnivale)

Fly Rio to Montevideo, then take a shuttle to Punta del Este
Punta del Este: 2 nights

Shuttle Punta del Este to Montevideo, then Ferry to Buenos Aires
BA: 2 nights

Fly BA to Mendoza
Mendoza - 2 nights

Fly Mendoza to Chicago
